Spartan studies. 1st post meh
Yey! Obacmar made a sketchbook! It's about time
I've been looking through your portfolio, but I really wanted to see a sketchbook.
Guess you'll be uploading more stuff here?
Cheer indeed! A sb; subscribing now. The skulls, ones on the left are a bit thin; but really like the top right one; you get the volume in so well!
Feeling brave. Trying to convey a woman's face. Its so hard to keep them from looking ugly or like a mans face.
Working from a photograph I try to complete the sketch in 4-5 mins sometimes going back to re-work.
Saw this angle on the neck and I thought i could draw it.
Scale and proportion studies.
In this exercise I'm drawing with loose structure quickly and checking my proportions and scale.
I get better as I progress.
I was fascinated by all my bad habits and terrible scale perception.
lovin the loomis
Hey there; wow. Proportion drawings. Love your work ethic. I always get like 'yeah, think I got it' after 5 min and then find out the hard way I didnt get it. I like the woman's faces. If you think theu'r too crude or manly, just soften the jaw a bit and your good.
Haha such fun looking studies! I bet you had fun as well, and learned too.
The head proportion studies look good.I like how you places them in the first figure. For some reason, it looks playful. Made me laugh
Neck studies have a really nice mood to them, look alive and healthy.Perhaps a bit to much white detail on the right one, but The colour scheme makes up for it. I'm having female head problems myself lately. I somehow end up drawing pretty guys, not pretty girls. So i can't give any tips.
Glad you're updating this frequently.
See you at the spartans!
Had to do some more before life drawing class tonight.
Thx for your comments.
Delphin I think the neck studies turned into muscle texture studies. Wierd how that happens
I love Mondays! It my life drawing group for 3 glorious hours. Tonight was a funny one because I forgot my sketchbook. I was actually ok, when I found pieces of discarded paper around the studio AND they were big pieces, so it was fun to draw big and vertical on a easel (I usually draw seated from the lap). But dam! Not fun to scan, so hopefully I never do that again.
I'm jealuois! A live drawing group! They turned out great. Please, please keep using the big paper & easel. You can alwyas just snapshot your drawings!
Thx Ashess. as I said.. I love Mondays. Honestly I don't get the benefit of the giant picture (which is anything over 6" X 12"). For a few reasons. I like keeping my muscle memory focused to my tablet size. The line quality is easier to make happen (not like I have allot of it in my sketches ). Scale and proportion is easier to control. Just all around Faster...But with the bigger ones I love getting the details..It really frustrates me when I draw big and focus in on one element for too long, when I finish the entire image is out of proportion and I feel wasted time.
You don't have a drawing group? Get one ! Even once a week makes life awesome...Well you should draw in the next spartan. Its not live action, but its as close as it gets.
Holy hot air ...long one
